I have returned! A brief summary of Iceland and Gaming News.

Yes! I am back from Iceland and I feel great!

Iceland was a brilliant country to visit, great views, calm city life and amazing hot springs which are better than any beach I have been to.

I’ll be at the Launch Conference in Birmingham on Thursday and Friday, where I’ll be wandering around talking to other devs (and maybe you), listening to the talks, playing some games, and I am shortlisted for the LAUNCH Conference Best Portfolio Award! I’ll be showing some photos of the event of course, and I’ll be continuing my development of Secret of Escape, so you might have a chance to try it!

In the meantime, feel free to read an article about Secret of Escape from! It’s a great site about PC gaming that writes really good stuff, totally worth a read.
